post box, Colthouse -- Beckside -- Colthouse -- Hawkshead -- Cumbria / -- 20.9.2013

Set into the side of a house named Beckside. Directly opposite is an overgrown brambly area with a stream running through it. According to local tradition, this may be the site of the house where Wordsworth lodged with Anne Tyson whilst he attended school at Hawkshead - although there are other contenders.
